Hey Cliff:

A quick glance of the rec's so far shows no one mentioned my favorite show of '81, which just happens also to be one of the finest sounding AUDs on this whole site:

This show is brilliant...overlooked often because of what seems like a pedestrian set list. But if you are looking for an example of what '81 COULD BE in terms of every song being beautifully played, this is your show.

Highlights include a ridiculously hot LET IT GROW>DEAL to end set 1, a sweet ALTHEA, WHEEL, HE'S GONE and a darn good FRANKLIN'S as well.

I know you've already received a ton of recommendations already, but DO NOT let this one pass by.

and Happy New Year!

Another nice "80's review thread" which is good to see...I really am impressed with the civility and knowledge of those involved, save a minor diversion or two...
